Man breaks 32 slabs of concrete with his elbow

This is the moment an Indonesian soldier karate chopped his way through a three-metre-high stack of concrete blocks with his elbow.

Video filmed on Wednesday (August 7) shows the solder, a practitioner of the martial art silat, taking aim and smashing the pile of 32 slabs in Padang, West Sumatra, to cheers from onlookers.

Crowds gathered to watch the spectacle, which marked the 350th anniversary of Padang independence from Dutch settlers.
